Klotz Matthias Jabs Signature RockMaster Cables
April 19, 2005
Guitar players also frequently ignore the proper usage of guitar and speaker cables. Klotz and Jabs want to be sure their cables are used properly, so the plugs’ anodized aluminum shells are color-coded: red for the guitar cable, blue for the speaker cable, and gray for the patch cable. A clever idea, and the cable type is also conveniently printed on the jacket as well.
Compared with several similarly priced challengers (of equal length), the Klotz-Jabs Guitar cable distinguished itself with an especially focused and coherent midrange, and a remarkably extended and sweet top-end. Clean tones rang with an acoustic-like open and airy freshness, while high-gain tones possessed an impressive abundance of aggressively textured crushed-glass grind, with plenty of stinging high-end presence. But don’t be intimidated by the RockMaster moniker, these fine-sounding cables are a great choice for less aggressive styles as well.
